Every year stories of Africa are told on the world stage, mostly by people who have little or no understanding of the continent and her people. Although not always ill-intentioned, these stories end up distorting our cultures, creating perceptions that are biased by Western ideas.
The Griot Company was created to correct this. As a creative arts platform, The Griot company aims at African stories in its most authentic form. We are a collective of artistes across different disciplines, employing varied art forms to uphold the legacies of the Mother Continent. To put it simply, we speak your mother tongue.
